I recently updated our free printable Montessori Continents 3-part cards in Chinese, Korean, English! As usual, I am happy to share these geography resources with you!
Before, our Montessori continent 3-part cards were much smaller, and I didn’t think much about the font. Here’s how they used to look!

Now, they are much more visually appealing, because the images and text are larger. This also means the words are much easier to see in all 3 languages.
Although my first child didn’t use these much, they have been helpful for my 3-year-old who is learning geography basics. I hope they can be useful your family, too!

1. Purpose of Montessori 3-part cards
- Continent picture
- Label (the continent’s name)
- Control card with picture and label together
Since the concept of continents are pretty abstract for a young child, we first focused on picture matching and recognizing the Montessori colors of teach continent. He also enjoyed coloring our continent printables!
Gradually, my son began to remember the continent names and recognize the Chinese characters, so he was ready to try matching the continent names.
2. Significance of Montessori continent colors
As with all Montessori learning materials, the continents follow consistent colors.
With this standard, children can start to associate continent names with colors, which can help improve their memory of the 7 continents!

5. Organizing and displaying Montessori 3-part cards – printable folder
To make the cards attractive and accessible for my preschooler, the 3-part cards displayed in a small wooden card stand.
However, I also made folder templates that you can download, print, and use with other Montessori 3-part cards from our website!
We used this colored cardstock paper so that the folders would match the 3-part cards!
